A Japanese garden relies on the philosophy of the circle of life and also on the expressiveness of nature.
Flow, contemplation and meditating on nature are activities that characterise a true Japanese garden.
The Japanese garden in Kadriorg park was opened on 31 July 2011. Masao Sone, designer of the garden, comes from Kyoto and learned landscaping in Tokyo as well as from his father who is a gardener.
The north-east pond of Kadriorg and its buried limestone slope, boulders, large trees, pond and waterfall were a brilliant source of inspiration.
A garden is like any living organism – it develops and changes in time and you will always find a reason to come back here!
